Confirmation that Milk Teeth are something truly special.
Label: Roadrunner Records
Released: 28th July 2017
In 2016, Milk Teeth laid down a marker with their debut album ‘Vile Child’. A solid gold set of absolute bangers, they’ve spent the year and a half since taking solid sonic foundations and building something even more remarkable on top.
Because, let’s be clear, for all the five-star brilliance of their first moves, ‘Be Nice’ is the nod and a wink that Milk Teeth are only just getting started. Not that they’re only offering the subtle signs – opener ‘Owning Your Okayness’ is an intercontinental ballistic missile, exploding with white hot heat. A catchy hip check, dripping with sassy energy its got more spark than the national grid. Add to that the thumping, growling ‘Fight Skirt’ and the achingly vulnerable ‘Hibernate’, and the twin peaks of Milk Teeth’s sonic spectrum are laid bare.
No one trick pony, ‘Be Nice’ is confirmation – as if it was needed – that Milk Teeth are something truly special, and they’re just getting started. Stephen Ackroyd
